Pours an opaque black body with ruby hues at the bottom and a mocha colored head that quickly dissipates but leaves a constant thin, yet sticky lacing.
Aromas of roasted coffee and lactose leap from the glass with rich roasted malt and just a touch of earthy hops.
The flavor robust for a milk stout offering generous amounts of roasted coffee and malt with lactose similar to the aroma and hints of sweet milk chocolate and only a touch of earthy hops.
Medium in body and carbonation, at times offering the thicker palate one expects from an imperial yet with the lighter finish of a milk stout.
I guess this is a bit of a hybrid style, but one can certainly appreciate what ST was trying to accomplish and they did a darn good job in my opinion. This beer is delicious and offers the best of the milk stout with the best of the imperial/American double stout.
